It is pretty much dead on, as far as I can tell, most likely you are doing something wrong.

I agree that the number of skills are right on - I think what confuses is that you don't have to have the skill mentioned twice. For example, Flyer (Grav) 1 and Flyer (any) 0 - it is assumed that Flyer (any) 0 is granted for Flyer (Grav) 1, so you don't actually have to list it (at least that is how I've always done it). This is true for Gun Combat, Gunnery, and Melee as well. It makes it look like you have more skills than you actually have. However, you only list 9 actual skill levels above 0 and that is entirely normal for a character with three terms served.

You are right, I just kept the cascades for ease of note keeping. The stats came out higher from mustering out benefits. He is above average, good for being an adventurer.

I see 9 actual skill ranks (>0), with 3 terms. I usually see an average of 2 skill ranks per term, if you get lucky with advancement every term, plus more from events, but you didn't get any there based on the events and choices you posted.

3 for terms, 3 for advancement (he did get lucky there), 2 for rank, and 1 from Life Event; equals 9.

Yes, one of which should be vacc suit, strange that it isn't on the skill lists more considering it's use for armor and other suits. Remote operations too, drones would be a big deal, militarily.

Instead, he can wield a broadsword. :mrgreen:

Combat Engineer could be considered a modern-day version of Pillage.

As for Rape.. Carouse? Which, he has none.


All my space Viking characters have Carouse twice. :mrgreen:
